If this book doesn't get you hooked on English literature by Ms. Pearson, then your . This book was incredibly satisfying That said, the writing is excellent and I especially liked Sophie's voice in the first third - you really do feel like you are seeing the world.

If this book doesn't get you hooked on English literature by Ms. Pearson, then your tastes must certainly differ from mine. This book was incredibly satisfying. The Summer of the Barshinskeys is not a typical romance novel as the plot covers the lives of several characters whose lives are intertwined in the midst of religion, romance, and inevitable warfare. That said, the writing is excellent and I especially liked Sophie's voice in the first third - you really do feel like you are seeing the world from her eleven year old POV and not an adult writer forcing it on you.

Diane Pearson (5 November 1931 in London – 15 August 2017 in London) was a British book . Diane Margaret Pearson was born on 5 November 1931 in Croydon, London, England, daughter of Miriam Harriet Youde and William Holker

Diane Margaret Pearson was born on 5 November 1931 in Croydon, London, England, daughter of Miriam Harriet Youde and William Holker. She attended Secondary School in Croydon.

This great bestseller was compared with GONE WITH THE WIND when first published in 1975. Their story is enthralling, tragic, romantic - and absolutely unputdownable. Diane Pearson wrote three novels before her great breakout bestseller, CSARDAS. CSARDAS - taken from the name of the Hungarian national dance - follows the fortunes of the enchanting Ferenc sisters from their glittering beginnings in aristocratic Hungary, through the traumas of two World Wars. From the dazzling elegance of coming-out balls, feudal estates and a culture steeped in romance, to terror and starvation in the concentration camps - no story could be more dramatic than.

Wonderful story! You don't have to love the theater or operetta to enjoy this book but if you do, then it will be more than good. It will be magical.

A struggling new opera house in the Austrian mountains. A tenor with a huge voice and an even bigger chip on his shoulder. A middle aged soprano with the voice of an angel and the body of a bean bag. Two eccentric "direktors" , an austere and secretive costume designer and a medley of fully drawn cast members all weave together into an unforgettably rich tapestry of music, beauty, secrets, pride, bigotry and sabotage.

I'll tell you what I both love and hate Diane Pearson for in equal measures. She never shields her characters. Sometimes, you want to jump into the story and say "No! Don't do it!" but her characters are nothing if not human in every sense. They (some) will make what I consider to be bad choices. They may or may not pay for this. (Just like real life). And others find just one more layer of goodness you never knew they had. But they're never wooden. We learn their past and even if we don't agree with the direction their life is taking, we understand.

I love that not everything is tied into a neat bow at the end. Enough is settled to be truly satisfying but there's always a few threads left trailing to make you wonder over the next few days, "I wonder what so and so is going to do now that..." and then you smack yourself cos its just fiction and of course 'so and so ' isn't going to do anything. 'So and so' doesn't exist. But they could. That's how real they are.

An adorable slice-of-Austrian-life - even if you don't know anything about music, or specifically operetta, you have to enjoy the rich cast of eccentric characters with which the author populates a small Austrian town enlivened by a struggling opera company.
